I am not sure why you want to use a loop or fprintf. The simplest, but potentially not square enough solution for a filled square
N = 5;
x = repmat(char(42), N, N);
disp(x);
*****
*****

For an unfilled square you can do
N = 5;
x = repmat(char(42), N, N);
x(2:end-1, 2:end-1) = char(32);
disp(x);
*****

On my system I get a squarer square with
x = repmat([char(42), char(32)], N, N)
* * * * *
* * * * *
* * * * *
* * * * *
* * * * *
Depending on how perfect you want, maybe you could use a thin space or a wide space.
For a filled diamond
a = [fliplr(tril(true(N))), tril(true(N)); triu(true(N)), fliplr(triu(true(N)))];
x = repmat(char(32), 2*N, 2*N);
x(a) = char(42);
disp(x)
**

For an empty diamond
a = [fliplr(triu(tril(true(N)))), triu(tril(true(N))); tril(triu(true(N))), fliplr(tril(triu(true(N))))];
x = repmat(char(32), 2*N, 2*N);
x(a) = char(42);
disp(x)

If you really need to use fprintf
y = mat2cell(x(:), ones(numel(x), 1), 1);
fprintf([repmat('%s', 1, 2*N), '\n'], y{:})

What if we tried to plot this shape
Rik el 17 de Oct. de 2022
@Usama Tanveer The answer to this question can be found in the documentation of the plot function, which is probably the first place you should have looked. Did you?

Hi!
You should start reading here: http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/control-flow.html This explains how to use loops and their syntax.
What do you mean with "square"?

like printing shapes using asterix, for instance a rectangle, a square, a diamond i know I will definitely have to use nested loops
Walter Roberson el 17 de Sept. de 2013
Filled or outline only?
Some of the shapes will not require nested for loops.

clc
clear
n=10;
A=repmat(char(42),n,n);
A(1:end-1,2:end)=char(32);
for i=2:10
A(i,i)=char(42);
end
disp(A);
